Change Academy

What is the one problem you’d like to solve in 2014? What would happen if your organization could effectively tackle its biggest challenge? How much good would come from your organization reaching its most ambitious goal?

This probably sounds very exciting and a little terrifying, but a few lucky nonprofits will have an amazing opportunity to achieve more with help from one of the best champions for social good: Dan Heath. Heath is the co-author of Made to Stick, Switch, and Decisive, and is a Senior Fellow at Duke University’s CASE center, which supports social entrepreneurs. Dan is looking for motivated teams from nonprofits and for-profit social ventures to apply for The Duke CASE Change Academy, an amazing program that will run from January to July 2014.

The Change Academy program is a one-of-a-kind coaching experience tailored to help you conquer one of your biggest goals. Your organization’s team will learn how to identify the best strategies for tackling your challenge, how to lead change, how to communicate your plan, and how to create a framework for solving even the toughest problems. The program combines in-person training sessions with real-world organizational challenges that attendees will work on back at home. Like most worthwhile efforts, the Change Academy will involve a lot of hard work and passion—two things readers of this blog have in abundance.

I urge you to find out more about the Duke CASE Change Academy and apply by the November 1, 2013 deadline to be considered for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Only six organizations will be accepted to this inaugural Change Academy session. We can’t wait to hear the results!
